[PATCH][SAMBA3] allow VFS modules to extend files_struct

wouldn't it be better if each module just kept this data in its own
data segment in any form they wish? It seems like this is fracturing
the allocated data of each module and making it harder to cleanup.

Also, instead of allocating a specific size block, wouldn't it be 
better to just have one void pointer and let the module manage it 
in the way they see fit? Like to put it under a different common
talloc parent?
